3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweet scent, small head, a hoppy, fresh, exciting taste with a mild aftertaste, perhaps a little caramel-like. One for the cellar and one to be enjoyed with friends.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of malt and grassy hop - something of a light roasted note. Golden amber color with virtually no head. Starts with a light toasted malt effect, mixed with citrus. Finishes dry and bitter. It’s more complicated than the foregoing indicates. Nice smell, nice taste. Nice bitter finish. Good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear amble, with a white bubbly head. Strong hoppy aroma with plenty of citrus fruit. Smooth on the palate, releasing caramal malty flavour at first, but then overtaken by stronger citrus fruits (especially lemon). The finish brings a more grassy hop flavour and long bitterness. Nearly as good as the cask version.

500ml bottle from Sainsbury’s, Holborn. Shared with my friends at a hotel room in Kings Cross. Clear golden in body colour under a creamy, white head retention. Aromatic floral hops. Fruit cocktail flavour with notes of lemon, grapefruit, orange and melon. Nice bitter ending. Zesty and refreshing drinkability. Very moreish (01.02.2007).

3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours clear amber with a fast-fading white head. Aroma is almost nonexistant, perhaps a little hops-a little citrus. Some carbonation, light in the mouth with some kind of lemony notes, some grass...balence definately tilted away from malts...nice bitter finish...Very refreshing, this would be a superb "good hot day" brew or a fine session ale.
